Can someone please tell me if xtnbreg is appropriate to use for hierarchical
linear modeling.  I have seen xtnbreg used to model hierarchical data under
the assumption that it allows the level 1 beta coefficients to vary across
the level 2 units.  However, the explanation of xtnbreg specifically says
"random effects" does not refer to the xb term.  My assumption is that it
allows the errors to vary across the level 2 units.

Is xtnbreg appropriate to use for hierarchical linear modeling?

Carter
